Proper way to add a SQL Express user instance database

Last Modified: 2012-05-06
I tried this once before, but apparently went about the wrong route, so I thought I'd ask the experts.

I am at the point where I want to add a database to my project.  I expect the project to verify SQL Express is installed (via prerequisites), but then I want to ensure that the user has a database created and build two tables inside it:  tblLog & tblFood

Can anyone that's got some experience with this help me out?
It doesn't have to be a single user instance if that makes it more difficult....
